Physical Description: Average
frame with some remaining projection. Has filled out
considerably since he signed and seen his athleticism decrease.
Mechanics: Throws from a three-quarters
arm slot. Medium-high leg kick. Inconsistent mechanics. Short
Fastball: 91-93 mph. Topped
out in the high-90s and sat 93-95 mph in previous seasons, but
has not shown that type of velocity in 2023. Pitch shows
arm-side run, but he really struggles with his command and
Changeup: 85-87 mph. Plays well
given his arm action, which allows him to push it and turn it
over. Shows some feel already. Did not throw in outings scouted
during Spring Training 2023. Flashed above-average potential in
the past, but unclear where pitch stands now.
Curveball: 80-82 mph. Short, vertical break. Does not
consistently snap it off. Has the tendency to lose his arm slot
and get more on the side of it, causing it to roll to the plate.
Notes: Participated in 2020 Fall Instructional league.
Was removed after walking two hitters on August 6, 2021 and did
not pitch for the rest of the 2021 season. Was included on the
roster for the 2021 Fall Performance Program, but it is unclear
how much he participated. Began the 2022 season in Low-A Salem,
but exited his first start in the second inning with an injury.
Rehabbed in Fort Myers before seeing game action in June in the
FCL and returned to Salem in August 2022. Worked in a
starter/piggyback role in the past but transitioned into a true
short relief role in 2023.
Potential low-minors depth arm unless stuff comes back. Was once
a very intriguing arm with impressive present velocity, but has
seen his body, delivery and velocity all back up over the last
few years. Injuries have slowed development as he has missed
significant time in both of his professional seasons.
Note: This page will be updated with a complete scouting
report after the scouting team has seen the player in regular
season game action.
